You want this because you don't want to use single use cups, because you support local artisans, and because when you buy things, you want them to be functional, unique and beautiful.
This hand-crafted stoneware travel mug is wheel thrown by real humans in Indiana. It holds 10-12 ounces of your favorite hot (or cold) beverage and comes with 100% food grade silicone lid. It fits in all the drink holders we've tested. And if you're worried about heat, you can add on a heat resistant silicone band ($2 extra), although we've found over the years that very few customers use (or need) the heat resistant band on this mug. As the Japanese say, "If it's too hot to hold, it's too hot to drink."
Each mug has a glazed dark gray brushstroke, but each one, just like us, is unique.
Each one is a unique piece of art
Holds approximately 10-12 oz.
Includes a 100% food grade silicone lid
Glaze will never fade — even with daily use

WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Single-use travel cups made from foam or paper with plastic lids — none of which are recyclable. Plus, do you really want hot liquid running through plastic and possibly leaching into your system?
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF Holds approx. 10-12 oz. Size: 5" h x 3.375" w Wash before use. Use: Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Important Note: The silicone lid can be tricky to fit; watch the maker's how-to video to ensure top is properly sealed before use, especially with hot liquids.
MATERIALS Lid is FDA/LFGB approved food-grade silicone. Mug is glazed stoneware.

ABOUT THE COMPANY Gravesco Pottery is a studio of artisans and potters led by mold breaker and founder, Rebecca Prowse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"Good design and function motivate me to keep creating new pottery that is intended for every day use. Each choice made during the design process is completely intentional. Choices like the angle and the curve, the shape of the lip, the way the handle fits your hand, the clay and glaze used. No detail is left to chance because it is deeply important to me that you love your handmade pottery for years to come and those little nuances make a big difference."
